Personalise your Google search results


The new feature, called SearchWiki, is designed to allow Google users greater control of search engine results by letting them re-rank, delete or suggest better pages and also to make comments on results.

It has released today.

The new feature is the first time that the internet's most popular search engine has allowed its users to change the order of search results.It also marks a new era in which users' preferences can be used to help with search engine results, rather than relying solely on automated formulas for ranking websites.The feature is available to those signed in to their own Google search accounts.

HOW IT WORKS
A series of options will appear along with Google search results. These include options to re-rank or delete recommendations, add a better webpage or leave a comment. The results are recorded until you change or alter them and help when you search for the same thing.

用户做出的调整或许并不仅仅影响自己的搜索结果,Google有可能会收集用户调整搜索结果的数据,从而改善搜索引擎的整体表现。此外,SearchWiki功能最糟糕的一点是,用户一旦启动该功能,就无法再关闭。
